Professional profile

I graduated from Cambridge University and Guy's and St Thomas's Hospital in London in 1995. I carried out my basic surgical training in South East London (King's College rotation) and subsequently went on to do my orthopaedic training in the South West London Region (St George's Hospital rotation). After completing my FRCS (Tr&Orth), I spent a year of advanced training in Adelaide, Australia in sports surgery, arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) and arthroplasty (joint replacement) surgery. I have also carried out a Master's degree in Engineering on hip acetabulum (socket) fixation techniques.

I have a committed interest in teaching and research and play an active role in helping and supervising research and education at my base NHS trust. My areas of special interest include primary hip and knee arthroplasty as well as revision arthroplasty and sports surgery particularly of the hip, knee and ankle.

I have published extensively in the orthopaedic literature on hip and knee surgery and have done several pioneering works on computer assisted/navigated orthopaedic surgery.
